ingredients

  • 1 1/2 ounces amaretti cookies (about 12 small cookies)
  • 3 ripe, firm peaches (about 5 ounces each), halved and pitted
  • 3 teaspoons sugar (1/2 teaspoon per peach half)
  • 3 teaspoons unsalted butter (1/2 teaspoon per peach half)
  • 2 cups fresh whipped cream
    • recipe tools

      Directions

      Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F. Butter the bottom of an 8-inch baking dish and set aside.

      Using a melon baller, clean out the red flesh from the center of each peach. Arrange the peaches cut side up in the prepared dish. In the bowl of a food processor, add the amaretti cookies and pulse until finely crumbled. Divide the amaretti crumbs between the peaches. Fill the center of each peach with the amaretti cookie crumbs. Sprinkle 1/2 teaspoon of sugar over each. Dot each peach with 1/2 teaspoon of butter.

      Bake until the peaches are tender and the filling is crisp on top, about 30 minutes. Serve warm with whipped cream.
